ESPN Trying To Trade For NBC’s Al Michaels To Pair With Peyton Manning To Commentate MNF

Broadcast sensation Tony Romo signed a record breaking 10-year, $180 million deal with CBS last week, and with the former Cowboys QB off the table, ESPN has moved their efforts into acquiring a big name to pair with another former quarterback to host MNF. 

According to the NY Post, ESPN plans to attempt to acquire Al Michaels from NBC Sports and pair him with Peyton Manning, creating a dream team in the booth.

According to the Post, Phillip Rivers is also another possibility, but all signs point to the 38-year-old free agent playing this season.

Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland currently commentate ESPN’s flagship program, but didn’t receive rave reviews last season as a pair.
